Welcome to Whistler! A RZR Adventure in Near Vancouver

If you have a driver’s licence and a desire to discover Whistler like never before, Whistler RZR tours may be what you’re looking for.

Imagine racing through the trees and trails, enjoying unparalleled views of the Sea to Sky’s finest glacier-fed lakes and infamous rainforest trails.

Lucky for you, this dream could soon become a reality. You’ll be able to achieve the adventure of a lifetime just an hour and a half out of Downtown Vancouver at Wilderness Ride’s RZR Tours.

What is RZR?

You’re not alone if you don’t know what a RZR is. Pronounced like “razor,” these machines look like souped-up versions of ATVs. They typically have a cage on the top for safety which is occasionally kitted out with a canopy to shield riders from the sun.

While we may be a bit biased, RZRs are definitely the better version of ATVs. The roving machines will take you soaring over rocks, whizzing through the trees, and racing through the dirt in an incredibly comfortable and stylish way.

Built for two or four-person adventures, RZRs are rugged mud magnets. Unlike ATVs, which are more so ridden than driven, the RZRs are much more comparable to rock buggies. In addition, they have upgraded comfort and allow passengers to remain seated rather than being forced to stand up the entire ride.

Now, we’re not just tooting our own horn over here; the RZRs are so impressive that even the Canadian military uses them as light infantry battalions

You don’t have to be a military member to know how to drive them, though. Each RZR is equipped with automatic transmission, so drivers just need to step on the gas and go.

Can anyone RZR?

Not quite everyone. Only those with valid driver’s licences are allowed to RZR in Whistler. Guests must be at least 16 years of age, and those under 18 must have a parent or guardian sign a waiver form before being allowed to drive.

Those who are afraid of fast speeds, drifting, mud, and dirt are advised against booking a tour. That being said, all RZR tours are what you make of it. As a driver or passenger, you’re truly the one in charge of how fast or slow you’re comfortable with.

You’ll also never have to worry about being thrown in the deep end. You won’t ever be left alone during a tour as all RZR tours are joined by professionally trained guides in order to ensure that you’re remaining safe and don’t get lost in the wild.

What are the best RZR tours in Whistler?

With one friend, or ten, a RZR tour is an epic day of back country adventure.

The Adventure Group provides some of the best RZR adventures in Whistler. Their tours range between one and a half to two hours, offering guests more than enough time to ride.

Riders have a choice between several wilderness rides through Whistler’s backcountry or BC Tours through the gorgeous and temperate rainforests of BC.

The Wilderness Ride Tour comes in two sessions: a beginner and intermediate tour. Both are led by expert guides who direct guests to both gorgeous and muddy destinations. Both beginner and intermediate tours will run rain or shine.

The tour also brings drivers into a brand new skills park, outfitted with giant teeter-totters and big banked turns. The prices for two-seaters begin at $179.99, and four-seaters at $259.99.

The BC Tour, on the other hand, is a two-hour tour around glacial lakes and rivers as well as under the lush trees. Much like the Wilderness Ride Tour, the BC Tour is available for both beginners and intermediate riders. Prices for two-seaters begin at $269.99, and four-seaters at $369.99.

If you’re in need of a ride to the RZR headquarters on Cougar Mountain, don’t fret. Instead, take the complimentary shuttle from Whistler Village, Fairmont Chateau, and the Four Seasons Hotel.

What to Bring to RZR?

No matter which RZR tour you choose, you’ll need to wear closed-toed shoes. It’s safest to bring spare clothes, as you’re sure to get muddy.

If it’s hot out, be sure to bring sunblock to avoid a burn. Bug spray is also suggested, as you never know what kinds of crazy bugs are out there.

Goggles and full-faced helmets will always be provided for your own protection and are mandatory when riding. All helmets are Department of Transportation certified and meet or exceed the legal requirement for a helmet to be used on public roads.

What is There to do besides RZR touring?

If someone in your party is underage or doesn’t feel like joining in on the fun, don’t worry about leaving them behind. There are always other fun activities for them in and around Whistler.

Spend your day escaping the heat by axe throwing at Forged Axe Throwing. All you need for the activity is closed-toed shoes and an arm to throw.

Adrenaline junkies will love bungee jumping over Whistler’s glacial-fed Cheakamus River. The adventure will take on a 160 ft (53 m) bridge and 300 ft (91 m) above some of the coldest river waters in the world. 

Get up close and personal with the bears of British Columbia with a bear-watching tour. Bring along your camera to snap photos of the majestic creatures from the luxury of a Land Rover.
